Decent show, but having listened to the two previous shows this would be the weakest imo. "Vassillios" really hit a peak in '98, but the version here isn't a personal favorite. The "Little Betty Boop" is ruined by dreadful feedback squeals - and that's almost 30 minutes of the show. On the upside is "Aceetobee" and the first "Nughuffer" I have heard in awhile. As for it being one of the first "trancefusion" jams I would check out the "Devil's Waltz" way back on 11-17-97. Good sound overall.

I know the buzz about the Mr. Don from 05/07 of '98 being the first breakout jam where bisco really latched on to that techy jam style we all know and love today. But if this Nughuffer doesn't express that sound idk what does.....probably one of my favorite jams to date and this predates that Don by almost 3 months!! gritty, dancy untzz to the highest degree

To this day, this show is the only one the Biscuits played in West Chester PA. It's pretty solid all around; the Biscuits always have fun in PA, particularly right around this time when they were starting to branch out from the northeast, and it's evident from the opening Vasillios riff right up to the end.
The Vasillios is very trance-y for the era, and it segues into a killer Boop. Unfortunately, there is a rough patch of feedback that renders the middle peak section completely unlistenable, the only real disappointment of the first set.
The second set highlights include the debut of the B&C -> AC2B pairing (which would be played a few more times, most notably on the second night of Haymaker) and an early Shimmy paired with a monstrous Nughuffer, which is the show's predominant highlight.
In the context of Winter 98, this show is probably a 4.5, but I'm giving it a three in light of the feedback issues in an otherwise great Boop, and to balance the other review.
With a very focused and repetitive electronic jam. It is on fire and sounds tranced out, especially for 98 bisco. The drums are so tight it is rediculous. Very innovative improv while incorporating techno. Also the sound quality is perfect, crisp and clear. Pro recording for sure. The rest of the show is blazing too. Old bisco is sick.
